Green Spelt Sushi with Beetroot

Vegan Green Spelt Sushi is a delicious alternative to ordinary rice sushi. This version contains beetroot and avocado amon other tasty things

By now you might have noticed that I’m slightly hooked on sushi. My first article on this blog was about pumpkin sushi with black rice. A few weeks ago I published a post about how to host a sushi party and how to cook the perfect sushi rice.
And I have so much more in petto. I just love how you can combine almost anything you want and how quickly it is to make.

Today’s green spelt sushi version is some really healthy shit. Instead of nutrient-poor rice I used green spelt this time and filled it with some more or less uncommon veggies for ordinary sushi. And this is much tastier than it sounds. Avocado, cucumber, carrot, beetroot and cress in a green spelt coat. Some soy sauce and wasabi: Awesome! I was truly amazed by the green spelt taste as well as from its sticky textures. Green spelt definitely is the better kind of rice.

If you like sushi and eat it as regularly as I do it is advisable to replace the rice with something a bit more healthy from time to time. Or if you want to impress your friends with some special and extraordinary sushi that you won’t get at a restaurant.
And I’ve tried several different sushi versions on my friends already. They were not disappointed 😉

    1. Thank you Maikki! The grey background is a wallpaper sample from the hardware store. It looks a bit like a rusty metal pattern and I love it! (and it’s soo much lighter than a rusty metal plate! 🙂
